A friend called to let my wife know that a nearby lake had perfect ice for skating. So, I left work early, and my wife, daughter and I headed to the lake (about 15 mins from my house) to skate. Of course, I brought my camera along. I was glad I did. The ice provided many great shots, since it was quite clear (but thick) and had all sorts of things frozen in it...and no snow on top. These bubbles were just one of them. It was a bit of a challenge, as I took all of the shots on skates and freehand.
